An Easel Card

I made this birthday easel card using Beary Big Hugs from Belles N Whistles Stamps. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Truly Scrumptious. My color combination came from this week's challenge at Off The Wall Craftiness which is to take inspiration from this photo:
The challenge at Belles n Whistles is lace & frills. The lace that I used is in the form of a border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts.
